To transact on Stripe, Stripe must verify:
Supportability of your business: what you sell, and if we can support your product/category
The overall risk level of your business
Any business using Stripe must meet a set of checks and requirements designed by us, our financial partners, the credit card networks, and regulators.
These checks and requirements are intended to prevent abuse of the financial system, provide your potential customers with clear and useful information, and prevent material loss to your business or to Stripe.
If, at any time, we are unable to confirm that your business meets these checks or requirements, we may ask you to send us more information or fix the problem.
Depending on the severity of the issue, your account may not be able to process payments or receive transfers until the issue is resolved. We will let you know if that’s the case.
